The machine appears to have a clever way of correcting out of balance loads. However, if it is unsuccessful at re-balancing your wash, it just rocks the drum back and forth, pretty much forever. Don't try to wash a single bathroom rug. Not happening.

Purchased this to replace a 15+ year old top-loader. Although I had read reviews so knew the drawbacks of these new machines, I had no idea how truly annoying they are! (1) Extremely long wash cycles (over 1 hour for a "normal/cotton" load). (2) Don't clean nor rinse very well (even using minimal detergent), so I always use the extra-water feature, but sometimes still end up running an extra rinse&spin cycle. (3) It is impossible to get bleach into the dispensing drawer without first pouring it into a container with a spout. (4) Hate having to dry the machine with a cloth AND leave the dispensing drawer and door open (as recommended in the instruction manual) to prevent the mold problem everyone talks about. The machines look so sleek and modern in the ads, but not so much in your house with the door and dispensing drawer hanging open! From what I read this is NOT an LG problem but a problem with all the newer machines. Wish someone still made old fashioned top loaders with an agitator, but things change and I'll just have to deal! If your old fashioned machine is still running, I suggest you keep it until it is no longer repairable.

      Comments about LG White Front Load Washer:

      My husband bought this washer wm3170cw after our older front loader gave out. He thought it was supposed to be a good quality machine. I loved my first one and didn't realize how restricted the water is on the new models. This washing machine dampens my clothes but there is never any extra water in the drum except when I wash one or two items on the delicate cycle. If I pretreat my clothes with a spot remover they still Come out smelling like the spot remover. Have to Make sure any of kids clothes that are soiled with urine are rinsed well or they will still smell like urine. Had no problems like this whatsoever with my older front loader. This one just simply doesn't use enough water to get clothes clean. Very discouraging.

                  Comments about LG White Front Load Washer:

                  My washer was delivered 7-22-16. Soon after it began to spin violently. Since then I have spoken to LG Customer Service 3 times. It has been leveled 3 times, but the violent spinning eventually showed up, sooner and sooner. Today Myrtle Beach Appliance repairman took the washer apart. The lower weight to the drum had come off and was on the floor. The damage to the guts of the machine is extensive. I want a new machine-I am not comfortable using this one. I had gotten a lemon but that happens. The parts and labor to fix it have got to cost more than simply giving me a new washer. Consumer Reports gives great ratings for your washers-I'm waiting to find out. I have not been able to use this one enough to know. Mary Lee Myers

                          Comments about LG White Front Load Washer:

                          I needed a dependable washer on a pedestal (which I had already purchased) and chose this washer. It's easy to operate. I love the "long" melodic chime to let me know the cycle is finished so I can hear it. The door swings wide open - don't forget to leave open to air washer out to avoid mildew. The reviews on this washer were highly rated, and I see why.

                          Service and delivery comments:

                          Custom Global Logistics in Albuquerque delivered this washer to my garage. The box was in perfect condition, so was the washer because of how well it was handled. I was very impressed with this company. Excellent customer service, too.

                          We've only had the washer 3 weeks, but it works excellent so far. In comparison to our 10 year old front loader this is much quieter, cleans better and more efficient.
